Year 4

 

Year 4 have had a very busy week. On Monday we enjoyed learning about Forensic Science and worked well as a team to solve the crime. On Tuesday we finished painting our Roman shields and then we went outside to create one of the most famous Roman army formations, the tortoise. Friday was the day of the solar eclipse and Year 4 went outside to enjoy the experience. In the afternoon we did some research into the human organs, look at the pictures below to see how we got on.

Year 5

 

Wow, what a busy week! As it was National Science week, we have been getting our scientific brains in gear. On Monday we had a forensic day...unfortunately there was a burglary at the school and our new caretaker was injured!! We had to look at the supsect's clothing, handwriting, DNA samples, footwear, broken car lights and much more. We used chromatography to separate the colours in the ink that was used to write a threatening letter, we were then able to match this to a suspects pen from their house. It was really exciting as we got to dress up as Scene of Crime Officers and really use our heads! We also were luck enough to view a partial solar eclipse on Friday. We had some binoculars projecting an image onto card, but unfortunately it didn't show the image well when the clouds came over. Luckily, we also had several huge trays of water which allowed us to view the suns reflection safely. It was incredible to watch!

Year 6

 

In between working hard in preparation for Sats, we still had time to enjoy our Science Forensics lesson which Miss Groome very kindly organised for KS2. The first six pictures below are courtesy of MEN Media. Then on Tuesday, Mrs Wiswell came in to tell us all about Judaism and we really enjoyed her representations of the 10 plagues as well as understanding the symbolism of the Seder meal.
